|ESPN.com: College Basketball Rumors||[Print without images]|
"Positive headlines are always welcome for college basketball programs, especially when they're of the recruiting variety. But for the University of Washington, the attention that commit Nigel Williams-Goss has generated over the past few weeks, punctuated by his jump up in the ESPN 100 to No. 20 and selection to the McDonald's All American Game, is the type of ammunition the Huskies can use to make their last pitch to Aaron Gordon. The Huskies are battling Kentucky, Arizona and now Oregon in the last lap of Gordon's recruiting race.
